David Luiz has insisted Chelsea's players are ready to put their bodies on the line to guarantee a glorious finish to their season.

The Blues are facing a punishing schedule that has seen them play twice a week for the past month, something that will continue for at least another month. Luiz believes the only way to ensure a top-four finish in the Barclays Premier League, as well as FA Cup and Champions League success, is for Chelsea's players to go through the pain barrier.

Luiz, who has featured in all 10 of caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo's games in charge, said: "Chelsea want to win all the competitions. I think we will put the best team against Tottenham, the best team against Barcelona. It's impossible to rest too much now. It's a short time between games because Chelsea compete in three competitions."
